ABA member here, wish I would have seen this earlier. $10 for one CLE credit on an interesting topic is absurdly good deal.

How many callers did you end up having, and does the ABA plan on having a similar panel in the future?

Ray Beckerman said...

Yeah, sorry about that. I should have mentioned it sooner.

There were 102 callers.

I think they might be having similar panels in the future.

hello Ray. Will you be posting a copy of the new Limewire suit that was recently filed by the music publishers? Interested minds would like to review it :-)

Keep up the great work!

Ray Beckerman said...

Yes I will post it. Do you have the case name & the court in which it was filed?

Here is the link to their press release. It is in the sourthern district of NY of course. I see they added Greg Bildson and from what I understand, the only reason he was added is so they can black mail him into testifying for their side.

The plaintiffs – EMI Music Publishing, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Universal Music Publishing Group, Warner/Chappell Music, Inc., Bug Music, MPL Music Publishing, Peermusic, and The Richmond Organization – filed the action against LimeWire LLC, Lime Group LLC, LimeWire CEO Mark Gorton, former COO and CTO Greg Bildson, and M.J.G. LimeWire Family Limited Partnership in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
